Dallas Mavericks guard Raymond Felton has been suspended four games by the NBA "for pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm," the league announced on Thursday.
Felton pled guilty on the gun charge a couple of weeks ago, and he avoided jailtime. He was given a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. The incident that got him arrested, which involved a semiautomatic handgun, occurred back in February in New York. A suspension was expected after the guilty plea.
